Senate panel to hold briefing on Cheyenne-Arapaho bid

The Senate Indian Affairs Committee will hold a briefing September 8 on the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes land claim and casino proposal.

The tribes are claiming 27 million acres in Colorado. They say they will settle 500 acres and gaming rights in the state.

The backers include several Alaska Native corporations. Some Colorado lawmakers fear Sen. Ted Steven (R-Alaska) might try to insert a rider into an appropriations bill to benefit the project.
